We hope all employees will begin to consider themselves ambassadors of our mission to be beside patients and those in the community we serve at every turn. Keep in mind all the services we offer – not just home healthcare – and how services such as our Caregiver Support Network and wellness programs, hospice, and the work of our affiliates Strong House and LIFETIME, might benefit a patient or their family.

Hospice Myth

Myth: Hospice care is expensive.

Fact: Hospice is less costly than care provided in a traditional medical setting. Medicare Part A, Medicaid and many private insurance plans cover Hospice Care at Home, which may reduce out of pocket expenses.
